  1. I recently learned of Greg passing. I ran into him on separate occasions over the past several years and he was always willing to stop and have a quick conversation and a laugh…..I am so sorry for your family’s loss.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about Greg passing. I truly always held him near to my heart! Greg was a wonderful person and oh how I loved his smile & laugh! Although I haven’t seen him in years, he will always be in my heart! I sure had a beautiful Candy Apple red paint job on my prized Javelin done by him! Many thoughts and prayers to each and everyone of Greg’s family!

  3. To All,
    We are all so saddened by your loss. Greg was a part of life as a beloved son, brother, father, husband, uncle and dear friend to many. His loss will be felt deeply. It is apparent that Greg had a robust love for life and his energy permeated all that he did. It is wonderful that you have so many memories of Greg and his zest for everything. His energy was amazing. His parting days spending time with his closest family and friends was a precious gift. He was part of a loving family and this makes life worth living.
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you now and into the future as you mourn his loss.
    Blessings to all of you,

  4. Pat,
    My sincere condolences to you and your family. No parent should have to go through the agony of losing a child. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  5. Dear Pat and Gene,
    We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We knew Greg when we used to come over to your house to visit when Scotty was little. He was always very kind to my baby and patient with our hanging around Pat. Pat and Gene are God parents to Scotty, who is now almost 35. Our hearts go out to you both, Marty , Greg’s wife and children. Your family has always been very special to us. Without Pat, we would not have made it. Again, our hearts are so very with you all.
    Susan and Scotty Grasmick (Wyant)

  6. Oh my! The news of Greg’s passing (and cancer?!) is very sad for me. I know he is in a better place and we all have another angel. Greg (and Randy Shisler) were the brothers I never had. We had such fun as kids on minibikes racing around the prairie! Greg would always have to walk a long way to me to start my bike again! He was always one of my best buddies. Through the years, we stayed in touch – mostly through the yard in Pueblo, when I would pass back through and stop by. Greg would hear something in my car, and end up fixing it! He was always such a wonderful person to me. The last time I talked to him he was so happily married! It was wonderful to hear him find the love of his life! My prayers go to Oxana and Colton, and Marty, his parents, the rest of Greg’s family, and Randy. I truly always thought I would see him again! He definitely made a mark on my life.

  7. To the family and friends of Greg Medve:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, especially during these difficult days of grieving the absence of Greg.

    I have so many fond memories of Greg, as well as Pat, Gene, and Marty. In 1972, I recall waking up in my hospital room at St Mary Corwin, and lo and behold, Greg had become my roommate. It seems that he had been having a little too much fun with a go-cart, and he ended up flipping it, hurting himself in the process.

    As I recall sharing my childhood with Greg, a saying immediately comes to mind: ‘If you’re not living life on the edge, you’re taking up too much room!’� He had an incredible spirit, was dearly loved, and is a soul I will never forget…

    May God bless and be with you all; may the Holy Spirit minister to you, and give you comfort and the full measure of peace that surpasses all understanding; may you fully know the hope freely given though Our Lord Jesus Christ, and the promise that, in due season, we may again be with Greg in paradise.

    In His abiding love,
    Jeff (and Michele) Yarberry
